Next thing is,  you'll be hearing I've been asked to clean my boots.

And no doubt you'll read about me being asked to assist Rafa, apparently I pick better starting line-ups.

I'd take Atsu on loan with a view to buy. 

 

Worst thing about these ridiculous rumours is that in a few weeks time, the pundits and rent-a-quotes will be deriding deluded Newcastle fans for thinking they're going to sign Benzema, Fabregas, Toure, etc.

Ross Barkley has apparently been given a week to decide if he is signing a new contract with Everton.

 

No one has linked us or owt but that'd be nice.

I'm not entirely sure he looks like a player who has the desire to become world class. He'd walk into our team of course but at what cost? I can see him going to a top six club and starting about ten games a season.

I think he'd consider it, he'd play a lot more here than any team in the top 6 and (possibly NUFC tinted specs here) are we less attractive than any of the rest of the league particularly? Are we less desirable than Bournemouth, Stoke or West Brom?

 

A year left on his contract would bring the price down, we could do with someone in that position and hes a step up in quality on what we have.

Wouldn't make any sense for him to come here, it'd be a stretch to even call it a sideways move from Everton to us considering how they're doing in the league lately, bringing in Koeman, current squad before lukakau etc leave.

 

Benetiz is our draw but bringing in a 23year old international being linked with champions league qualified clubs in the same division is a tough ask tbh

Theres not a sideways from Everton at the moment (in England), look at the league they're 8th on their own by a mile on either side, well ahead of west brom, comfortably behind man u.

 

Which side above Everton is he going to where he'll play? Man U, Arsenal, City, Liverpool, Spurs, Chelsea.

 

They've all got better options or don't use his position.

Does Koeman just not fancy him then? I imagine he'll go somewhere like Man City and end up warming the bench for a couple of years before moving somewhere like stoke. 

 

I think he'd be great for us in that number 10 role. Not that I expect him to come.

To us it's a sideways move at best (at a stretch) is what i'm saying, and in reality it's not, we're a club that's been relegated twice in recent years with a debatable reputation for ambition, with Benitez in to salvage that currently, but we're a way off proving anything yet.

if you think his sole reason for moving outside of the clubs you've listed is getting a game it's pretty hopefully, and even then prob got a good shot at getting into man.u/arsenal/liverpool regularly considering some of thier most featured players are the likes of felliani, ramsey, coquelin, carrick, llanana, henderson he'll fancy himself to dislodge hose guys tbh.

No, we don't need a number 10 do we

We do. Just maybe not a player who's not consistently performed for his home club.

 

Frankly we'd be better off chasing Sigurdsson, who's far better than our lot, at a club we could lure him from, has performed consistently and seems a model pro.

If you want something reliable then you won't go far wrong than on here. Most of the bullshit links don't make it on here.
